The Man Upstairs?

"Worship... rises or falls with our concept of God; that is why I do not believe in these half-converted cowboys who call God the Man Upstairs. I do not think they worship at all because their concept of God is unworthy of God and unworthy of them. And if there is one terrible disease in the Church of Christ, it is that we do not see God as great as He is. We're too familiar with God."
-A.W. Tozer

Do you have the source for this AWESOME quote? I want to see if it is in one of the books of his I have so I can read the context. Thanks.
